If we work hard enough on the next election, perhaps he can start his first administration in 2015.

re: #1 Decatur Deb

Which brings up the big problem of the 2014 elections. If the upcoming midterm election is like the previous one, and similar to a long history of these things, the GOP has a good chance of not only remaining in control of the House but also the wingnuts strengthening their position.

I can appreciate the gag about now that he is in his second term, he cannot blame anything on his predecessor.

For that, housing starts and the stock markets are going up…

Obama inaugural schedule released
By Emily Goodin - 01/16/13 11:26 AM ET

SUNDAY, JAN. 20

Vice President Biden is officially sworn in at the Naval Observatory at 8:15 a.m.

Obama is officially sworn in in the Blue Room of the White House at 11:55 a.m.

The Constitution requires the oath of office on Jan. 20. When the 20th occurs on a Sunday, it’s traditional for there to be a ceremonial swearing-in on Monday.

Serious smog problem:

As is often the case in the winter, a thick river of haze hovered over the Indo-Gangetic Plain in January 2013, casting a gray pall over northern India and Bangladesh. On January 10, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of haze hugging the Himalayas and spilling out into the Ganges delta and Bengal Sea.

The haze likely resulted from a combination of urban and industrial pollution, agricultural fires, and a regional meteorological phenomenon known as a temperature inversion. Usually the air higher in the atmosphere is cooler than the air near the surface, a situation that allows warm air to rise and disperse pollutants. However, cold air often settles over northern India in the winter, trapping warmer air—and pollution—close to the surface, where it has the greatest impact on human health.

The Inaugural Parade: Eight Floats to Watch For
The eight floats in the inaugural parade each have a theme.
By Susan Larson

• The Hawaii State Float – Hawaii is the birthplace of President Barack Obama. The float features a large volcano modeled after the famous Diamond Head Volcano and a tribute to the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye.

• The Illinois State Float – Illinois is the birthplace of First Lady Michelle Obama. The float features American flags, the state flag and a panorama of the Capitol.

• The Pennsylvania State Float – Pennsylvania is the birthplace of Vice President Joe Biden. The float includes a replica of the Liberty Bell and the Pennsylvania State Seal.

• The Delaware State Float – Delaware is the home state of Vice President Joe Biden and Second Lady Jill Biden. The float includes a replica of State Capitol Bell Tower.

• The Martin Luther King Jr. Float – The float’s design features an image of King and a representation of his quote “out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.”

• The Civil Rights Movements Float – The Civil Rights float features images representing historic struggles of many of the civil rights movements in our country. The images represent struggles for rights for immigrants, women and homosexuals, along civil and labor Rights. The float also includes Martin Luther King’s quote, “The Arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.”

• The Tuskegee Airmen Float – The float is a tribute to the brave young men who were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Armed Forces. The float features a model North American P-51 Mustang.

• The Inaugural Theme Float: “Our People. Our Future.” – The American people are the focus of this float. Riding on the float are the citizen co-chairs for the National Day of Service.

Gingrich: Obama ‘potentially’ allowing Syria’s ‘virus’ to infect the U.S.

Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says that President Barack Obama’s policies are allowing a “worldwide virus” of terrorism from places like North Africa and Syria to destabilize the planet and “potentially” infect Europe and the United States.

Gingrich on Sunday told CNN’s Candy Crowley that a recent hostage crisis at a gas plant in Algeria was evidence that terrorism was more like a virus than “Whac-A-Mole.”

“I think we haven’t had any honest epidemiology,” he explained. “We’re trying to hunt down 5,000 people in al Qaeda, there is a potential pool of 65 to 100 million recruits… They’re spreading across the whole planet, from the Philippines to, frankly, the United States. And I think we greatly underestimate how many places you’re going to have trouble in the next decade.”

Santorum: Armor-piercing bullets are ‘a right in our country’

“Here’s what I would say about that: 50 years ago, you could go on a catalog and buy a gun,” Santorum opined. “There were no restrictions on gun ownership, there were no restrictions on magazines, there were no restrictions on anything and we had a lot less violence in society than we do today. The idea of pointing to the gun instead of pointing to society — and not one thing the president did dealt with Hollywood and gun violence and video games and all the glorification of violence.”

“Armor-piercing bullets, why do you need that?” Granholm interrupted.

“Why do you need to protect Hollywood?” Santorum shot back.

“You’re deflecting,” Granholm observed. “Deer don’t wear armor. Why do you need an armor-piercing bullet?”

“But criminals could,” Santorum quipped.

I love how some of the comments on rightwing sites are mentioning that the crowd for tomorrow’s second inauguration will likely be half the size of the January 2009 event.

Of course, they don’t mention that historically, second-term inaugurations tend to be smaller in scale than for newly-elected officeholders. This was the case for the last four (who had official attendance numbers) -Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, GW Bush.

Nor do they mention that even with the lower numbers, attendance is still expected to be close to one million people.

This got a little bit of press last week for the publicity sizzle, but I think it is something upon which to dwell for the long term:


Interview with George Church: Can Neanderthals Be Brought Back from the Dead?

[…]


SPIEGEL: Mr. Church, you predict that it will soon be possible to clone Neanderthals. What do you mean by “soon”? Will you witness the birth of a Neanderthal baby in your lifetime?

Church: That depends on a hell of a lot of things, but I think so. The reason I would consider it a possibility is that a bunch of technologies are developing faster than ever before. In particular, reading and writing DNA is now about a million times faster than seven or eight years ago. Another technology that the de-extinction of a Neanderthal would require is human cloning. We can clone all kinds of mammals, so it’s very likely that we could clone a human. Why shouldn’t we be able to do so?

SPIEGEL: Perhaps because it is banned?

Church: That may be true in Germany, but it’s not banned all over the world. And laws can change, by the way.

SPIEGEL: Would cloning a Neanderthal be a desirable thing to do?

Church: Well, that’s another thing. I tend to decide on what is desirable based on societal consensus. My role is to determine what’s technologically feasible. All I can do is reduce the risk and increase the benefits.

[…]

SPIEGEL: Are we correct in assuming you wouldn’t hesitate to use germ cell therapy, as well, if you could improve humans genetically in this way?

Church: Well, there are stem cell therapies already. […] We have people who live to be 120 years old. What if we could all live 120 years? That might be considered desirable.

SPIEGEL: But you haven’t got any idea which genes to change in order to achieve that goal.

Church: In order to find out, we are now involved in sequencing as many people as possible who have lived for over 110 years. There are only 60 of those people in the world that we know of.

SPIEGEL: Do you have any results already?

Church: It’s too early to say. But we collected the DNA of about 20 of them, and the analysis is just beginning.

SPIEGEL: You expect them all to have the same mutation that guarantees longevity?

Church: That is one possibility. The other possibility is that they each have their own little advantage over everybody else. […]

SPIEGEL: You seriously envisage a new era, in which genes are used as anti-aging-cures?

Church: Why not? A lot of things that were once left to luck no longer have to be if we add synthetic biology into the equation. Let’s take an example: virus resistance …


[…]

SPIEGEL: Do you understand that there will be people who feel rather uncomfortable with the notion of changing the genome of the human species?

Church: I think the definition of species is about to change anyway. So far, the definition of different species has been that they can’t exchange DNA. But more and more, this species barrier is falling. Humans will probably share genes with all sorts of organisms.

SPIEGEL: First you propose to change the 3-billion-year-old genetic code. Then you explain how you want to create a new and better man. Is it any wonder to you when people accuse you of playing God?

Church: I certainly respect other people’s faith. […]

Oh. My. Spaghetti Monster.

I exchanged a series of tweets yesterday with a loon who thinks Communists are still a threat to the US. I thought that was sad until I read that link.

Don’t get me wrong. Bush Derangement Syndrome is a real thing, and I unfortunately know people who still suffer from it. But Obama Derangement Syndrome?

I know these things are hard to quantify, but this just seems worse. If anything, it’s shown how many of our fellow Americans are so racist they would make George Wallace stand back and say, “Dudes. Chill.”

True enough — hence the “yet” qualifier.

I’m aware that Democrats face an uphill battle in 2014, but I’d still rather face that battle with Obama than Romney.

If the economy is improving — and we’ve seen at least some tentative indicators of that, what with the stock market, housing starts and fewer new unemployment claims — but if Romney had won in November, you know that he’d be taking the credit for it.

I take comfort from the fact that the GOP has cracked 48% of the vote only once in the last six presidential elections. And as their elderly base dies off, its just going to keep getting harder for them to win unless they move back toward the center and reach out to minorities.

I’d rather the belt was thinner, but I love the dress.

Gingrich: Obama ‘potentially’ allowing Syria’s ‘virus’ to infect the U.S.

re: #43 Vicious Babushka

“The Birthers have grabbed on to this “Harrison J Bounel” as “proof” that Obama is a 122-year-old vampire, or something.

Some bounty hunter claims he did a search on Obama’s SS# and found this.

My question is, how did he even get Obama’s SS#. No FOIA request is going to release someone’s SS# without direct and immediate cause.”

You know….it happens that duplicate SSN are handed out.

It was not unusual in the 1960s for Social Security Numbers to be used as university student IDs.

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Bill C-23, Fair Elections Act Seems Now on Solid Ground
Now that a Sen­ate com­mit­tee has rec­om­mended nine changes to Bill C-23, Fair Elec­tions Act, the leg­is­la­tion seems pretty solid. And, since Pierre Poilievre has, ap­par­ently, in­di­cated pri­vately that he's open to changes, an amended ver­sion of the bill will likely be­come law by this sum­mer. We would prob­a­bly have got­ten to this point ear­lier had not the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the bill ...

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
